High concentrations of minerals and salts in bore water can collect in your irrigation system over time. This can cause damage and decrease the water flow and pressure, whilst high concentrations of iron and other minerals can also cause corrosion in the watering apparatus. These are just some of the problems associated with bore water before we even mentioned the negative effect on crop growth. Let’s look at some of the ways that bore water treatment systems can resolve these issues.
Effective Water Purification
With proper purification, the minuscule mineral particles in your water can be used by plants as a fertiliser. The buildup of iron, calcium, magnesium and iron in pipes is dislodged and transformed into usable nutrients at the same time. Successful crop production requires less fertiliser when using this method of treating bore water, which is good news for both the environment and the bottom line. What’s more, savings on manpower and supplies for routine irrigation system maintenance are substantial after applying water treatment.
Improved Plant Growth
When bore water treatment is added to irrigation systems, plant growth significantly increases. Calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron—all of which are required for a plant’s proper growth and development—are now readily available in the water and soil.
The plant’s ability to absorb and use calcium makes it more resistant to disease and pests, and it also boosts the plant’s fresh weight, flavour, colour and shelf life.
The use of acid in chemical treatments increases the risk that it will seep into the ground. With bore water softener solutions such as Hydrosmart, you can avoid disruption to plant roots or soil ecology.
Many farmers have found that by using treated water on their crops, sugar levels have increased dramatically, allowing for fuller harvests and more produce per acre.
What Hydrosmart Can Do
Hydrosmart can deliver all of the benefits of bore water treatment systems described above. If you use a bore water irrigation setup, then Hydrosmart is the perfect solution to avoid a range of problems and deliver quality water that promotes excellent crop growth.
